Disaster Recovery explained
(DR) deals with the protection and resuming of mission critical operations of an organisation following the impact of a disastrous event. Disaster Recovery forms part of a business’ plan for Business Continuity.
A disaster can be considered as any unforeseen event that may impact an organisations operation, this could be a natural disaster such as a flooding or lightning strike or something that is caused by an accident such as a fire or spill.
Disasters are not always physical, they can, of course, involve such events as Cyber Attack which although does not damage the physical infrastructure of an organisation, may cause irreparable damage to data.
Organisations should have Disaster Recovery Plans in place, this plan should be developed to allow the resumption of normal business operations through considering data, hardware such as servers, computers and networking equipment, services such as connectivity and power and indeed environmental and logistical considerations such as office space, transportation and furniture.
